It’s WWW Wednesday. These weeks are fair speeding past!
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam A. Stevens on Taking on a World of Words.
The three Ws are:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you think you’re read next?
Light Seekers by Femi Kayode
Investigative psychologist Philip Taiwo has recently returned to Nigeria after training and working in the USA. He is hired by the family of a dead student killed in a mob attack to understand what really happened. I’m really enjoying this book via the Pigeonhole app. It’s great to read a crime novel in a different culture, and I’m learning lots while getting caught up in the central mystery.
The Power of Ignorance by Dave Trott
This is such an easy read it would be no problem at all to finish it in one day. But, to get real value out of the stories of creative thinking and problem solving I’m savouring it to give me time to reflect on each.
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
This is my Audible listen of the moment, so my dog walks are accompanied by the very non-Marvel versions of Thor, Loki and Odin and their adventures. All told in Neil Gaiman’s inimitable style with humour and darkness.
Blinding Lies by Amy Cronin
This is my first read via BookSirens. It’s a solid thriller. Set in Cork, Ireland with gangland connections, revenge, threat and good characters to pull it together.
Crow Court by Andy Charman
A selection of short stories which knit together to tell an overarching tale of the impact of the death of the abusive choirmaster of a small Dorset town. Full review.
The Good Neighbour by R.J.Parker
I finished this within a day – I just couldn’t put it down. The main character has a road accident and knocks on the door of a house near where she lives to ask for help. The man who answers the door is polite and helpful, but when she returns the next day to say thank you the police are there investigating the murder of the woman who lived there alone. I’ll publish my full review nearer the release date.
Truth Be Told by Kia Abdullah
This is coming up next on Pigeonhole. The blurb describes it as a courtroom drama, and I’m looking forward to starting it.
Have you read any of these? Do you have any recommendations for me to add to my TBR list? I’d love to hear from you in the comments.
